  • V-353 Refresh

    On Sunday , Feb. 18th, I updated the Windows 10 Home install on the V-353 build with KB4074588 Cumulative Update for build 1709. To make a long story short, everything got pooched. So before doing a clean install of Windows, I decided it was time to change the coolant and tweak the loop. The tube from the Q-fitting/drain port to the reservoir had a kick in the horizontal section that never looked right.

    This is the original.





    Changed the fittings on both sides of the Q-fitting to get rid of that kick. The internals looked good considering the coolant has been in there for a year and a half.





    The tube from the Q-fitting to the CPU block ended up being too short so that got replaced. Changed the tube from the CPU block to the radiator
    to keep the bend radius' the same.





    Did a 1 hour leak test.





    Refilled loop with distilled water and Dazmode protectant.





    It foamed up pretty good and settled down in 20 minutes.







    The fill port on the reservoir is under the waterline during normal use so when bleeding the air out, you have to tip the case on it's back end to burp it. Other than that it works pretty good. It will take a few days for those micro bubbles in the reservoir to disperse. It's ready to go back to work, at least until the next Windows update.

      Nice refresh. A drop of coloring would not hurt

        Thanks Moogly. I like the horizontal reservoir too. It gives you a bit more action to look at. You can get some pretty good wave action if you crank up the pump.

        Thanks Daz. Been sticking to the basics, but when it's time for the next coolant change... Really like that UV/Clear that Mayhems has.

          Tint of blue was exactly what was on my mind.

            Think a black fluid would go nice here also. I also really miss the circle pattern that EK used to do. Nice build dude.

              Hey guys, thanks for the suggestions. Choosing a coolant/colour has got to be the hardest part of a build, at least for me it is. I think that's why the Mayhems Clear / UV sounds like a good plan. You can always turn the UV off
